It’s All About Filberts & Mums

Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Thanksgiving is only a few days away and if you’re still looking for a centerpiece to make your table an elegant display of the season try using filberts and mums.

I prefer to use multiple smaller floral accents as opposed to one large centerpiece. Using smaller centerpieces will allow you to easily move the arrangements around the table when different courses are brought to the table. These arrangements couldn’t be easier to do!

I chose small square vases and tall cylinder vases. Another idea is to use unique containers or glassware you may have around your house.


  • Fill the vases with filberts (hazel nuts)
  • Once the vases are filled with filberts, fill the vessels with water.
  • Top the arrangement off with a single mum – in this case a copper disbud.

I love the monochromatic look and the use of various textures.
